The Multipoint iPaaS Approach
Are you getting tired of static point-to-point integrations that don’t grow along with your business? Of course, you are! When your business is starting out, using rigid solutions like middleware and plug-and-play integrations to automate your data between applications might work just fine. However, as your business grows, these integrations won’t scale along with your needs; they’re only designed to move data in the most basic ways with some severe constraints about how they can be implemented.
But we live in the future of data integration. There’s a solution in sight for those retailers looking to move beyond middleware and into a data integration solution that untethers their growth while keeping them agile to onboarding new tactics and managing change how they want to manage change.
This is the age of iPaaS and VL OMNI.
Growth usually comes hand-in-hand with adding and modifying channels, trading partners, and — of course — applications. This is cumbersome at best with middleware, point-to-point integration products, and other data integration products. But with iPaaS solution VL OMNI, running your business is at the forefront and VL is the magic behind the scenes that makes it all happen in the ways you want it to happen.
Welcome to point-to-multipoint data integration. Adding, modifying, or removing any integrations between any applications is no longer constrained to a linear function. With VL OMNI, data can be moved from a single application to many — and back again.
At VL, we know that the usefulness of data in your organization is not limited only to the ways it can be moved between applications. It’s also about how data can be moved and transformed by automation in meaningful ways. With an iPaaS solution like VL OMNI, multichannel merchants can more clearly define and separate data touch points across their application stack. Not only does this mean that businesses using VL OMNI can automate the data between applications in ways that best serve their business requirements and use case, but that this movement can be done in a single workflow and can encompass any number of applications. Data is pulled from its source application, normalized and transformed according to your specific business rules, and then pushed across multiple platforms automatically — without errors, and in real time! Even better, VL OMNI Connectors are agile and scalable and can handle sudden increases in levels of activity without issue (like on BFCM).
But that’s a lot to imagine! Keep scrolling to see our video on how VL OMNI iPaaS point-to-multipoint integrations are the future of data integration.
